Welcome to church. We’re so glad you’re here!
You’ve joined us at week 2 of our new series ‘True Jesus: meet the man who is God’ – exploring Luke’s gospel. Luke, a devoted follower of Jesus, has compiled for us a comprehensive, detailed, stunning and accurate historical account of the God’s time on earth in the person of Jesus and what we see is a very generous God on display. The outrageous generosity of God is displayed perfectly in the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus. Jesus’ generosity is costly, indiscriminate, selfless and abundant. He calls his people to follow Him. As such the means by which God saves people becomes the model by which the saved live.
Our network of churches at Grace Kensington, Trinity Gardens and Norwood seek to mirror the generosity of Christ. Our generosity will be evident in our engagement with our city’s poor, marginalised and oppressed, the wider body of Christ, and the care shown towards each member of our church. Our generosity will reach the young, old, married and single and meet them in their intellectual, financial, relational, spiritual, physical and emotional needs. Our generosity will be evident in the way we give abundantly of our time, talents and money towards our vision to make Jesus known.
So two questions: have you experienced personally the radical generosity of God in Jesus? No. Ask someone around you how that might happen for you today. If yes, are you being generous like Jesus? Think about it.
Keep trusting Jesus,
Simon (Pastor, Grace Norwood)
